This Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche coat is very clever. It's a double breasted belted military inspired coat with a removable cape, hence the convertible coat title. It's perfect for traveling when you really can only bring one coat. This is the one coat that is actually two coats as the removal of the cape gives the coat a different look. The cape can be removed, or, worn over the shoulder, or just hanging from the back. Wow, it's like three coats for the price of one! The soft wool will keep you warm and is lined in beautiful black silk and has a slim torso fit and flared skirt with perfect pockets to hold a pair of Perrin leather kidskin gloves. Originally retailed at I. Magnin, this coat makes us wish winter would never end since this is a perfect coat for a fashionable fall into winter with style and panache! If you live on the East Coast or in Europe you have a good 6 weeks of cool weather ahead, so justify our love for this YSL!
